Apparently, vigorous testing revealed that there was absolutely nothing wrong with my sewing machine that's in for repair. This suggests that my problems were
user my error, making me rather nervous to be honest. I have no idea what I may have been doing wrong (it's not like I've not used a sewing machine before) and I'm worried it will happen again.
Only time will tell though and for now, I'm really happy that my machine's on it's way back to me. It should arrive tomorrow after 8 long days and I'm still hopeful that I'll make the Sew for Victory deadline. I've been waiting somewhat impatiently, but luckily I spent a long weekend with friends and when I got back to work today, a beautifully wrapped gift was waiting for me!
My lovely colleague Juliana, who follows this here little blog, saw this fridge magnet in a vintage shop and thought of me. Isn't it a gorgeous little piece of history? It's straight out of The Ladies' Home Journal from May 1925...
Don't you just love how random kind gestures can lead to such euphoria? What's the nicest / most thoughtful stitching-related gift you've ever received?
